Information for

International students

At The Engineering & Design Institute London (TEDI-London) we welcome applications from across the globe. Created by three international founders: Arizona State University, King’s College London and UNSW Sydney, our aim is to give you the right mix of skills to tackle global challenges and help change people’s lives. 

International admissions - a personalised approach

If you’re excited about becoming an engineer, TEDI-London can help you achieve your goal. We encourage applications from students of all subject backgrounds, meaning your potential to be a great engineer is more important than what you’ve studied in the past. Unlike many engineering programmes, we do not require applicants to have A-levels in Maths or Physics: if you’re otherwise a great fit, you’ll be able to build these skills during the admissions process with a short online course instead. The application process will also include a short online interview where we can get to know you better.

Take a look at our International Entry Requirements page to learn more about our admissions process.

International student scholarships

We have a commitment to diversifying the types of people studying engineering – this means we offer competitive scholarships for international students. Scholarships are worth up to 50% of your annual tuition fee per year for the duration of your studies, and are awarded based on your performance at interview. 

Visas and Immigration advice

We know that moving to another country can be a daunting process and we will help you every step of the way. Once you have applied to TEDI-London, we will decide if you need to pay the international rate of tuition fees and if you will need to apply for a visa to study in the UK. 

Student Visa Guidance

TEDI-London has the right to sponsor students on Student Visas, and it’s looking to gain status as a sponsor with ‘a record of compliance’ with UKVI as soon as possible. This is normal and required by all new sponsoring higher education institutions in the UK.

During this period, sponsored international students are unable to work in the UK whilst studying.

A personal learning experience in the capital

London is voted the best student city in the world for studying abroad (QS Best Student Cities 2024). TEDI-London students can make the most of all the culture and entertainment the capital has to offer with our South East London campus base and easy transport links. Our small cohort and exclusive focus on engineering means our students can have a personal experience whilst being part of the big city.  



At TEDI-London, we don’t have our own accommodation. But the campus’s excellent travel links mean you can either live locally in South East London or further afield. We also have strong relationships with well-respected providers of student accommodation. So we’ll be able to help, whether you are looking for a room in halls, private student housing, a flat or house share.
